Where: Hart House Theatre, 7 Hart House Circle
When: February 28 – March 7, 2020
Cost: Tickets are $15 to $28 and can be purchased online at harthouse.ca or in person.
Details: A clownish look at the foibles of combat, Oh, What A Lovely War! is a satire with songs that questions humanity’s glorification of battle and the cycle of violence.
This modern staging will take this classic, WWI themed play and place it firmly in 2020, within the world of gamers and mega-violent video games, to force a look at how we pass along warlike thinking to the next generation. This show is presented in association with Hart House’s 100th Anniversary and salutes the House’s historic connection to the military efforts in the Great War.
By Ted Allan, Charles Chilton, Joan Littlewood and Gerry Raffles. Directed by Autumn Smith.
Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes with additional time for an intermission.
